Times reports on Paris revolt

On 24 February 24 1848, news of revolt in Paris is reported in the second edition of The Times, although the scale of the uprising is not immediately appreciated. This begins extensive coverage of events in France, with newspapers in Britain often publishing several editions in one day to keep up with the fast changing situation.
